Glass Media


Abrasive Media

DSGL promotes the use of Recycled Glass as an abrasive media with our system to clean most surfaces. E.g.

  • Metal Pipes & Structures to CW5
  • Concrete Plinths
  • Driveways
  • Stone Buildings
  • Plastic Structures

Crushed Glass Grit

Crushed glass grit is manufactured from 100% recycled bottle glass. This glass grit delivers superior performance relative to mineral/slag abrasives. Crushed glass grit contains no free silica, is non-toxic and inert and contains no heavy metals typically found in coal and copper slags.

Blasting with Crushed Glass Grit

The angular particles in crushed glass grit allow for aggressive surface profiling and removal of coatings such as epoxy, paint, alkyds, vinyl, polyurea, coal tar and elastomers. Glass grit is lighter weight than many slags, allowing for increased consumption efficiency and production time – up to 30-50% less glass grit used. Crushed glass grit delivers very low particle embedment, which produces a whiter, cleaner finish. Similar to many slags, crushed glass grit has a hardness of 5.0 – 6.0 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale.

Crushed Glass Grit and the Environment

Since crushed glass grit is manufactured from bottle glass, it contains no free silica which is commonly found in blasting sand. The use of post-consumer glass directly benefits the environment by diverting waste from landfills. Crushed glass grit is free of heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, asbestos, beryllium, titanium, etc., all typically found in coal and mineral slags.
